    Honestly a shocking performance by both fighters.
    Both have zero cardio, both over weight for their body size.
    This is showing what profesional fighters should not look like.

    There is no other sport where professional athletes only perform once or twice a year.

    That didn't look professional at all. If this is the standard in the UFC, then the product has a long way to go to improve its quality.

    Hunt cardio was fine, he was just waiting for the moment and respecting Lewis hands cause HW.

    Two out of conditioned fighters waiting for the other to gas out after lumbering around the ring for a while.

    It was a decent slugfest. They both ate a lot of shots.

    Stop complaining. They weigh almost 300lbs.

    I think in Hunt's case he's also too old for this shit but Lewis should definitely lose weight and improve his cardio if he decides to fight again.

    And ? If they had comitment to the sport they would not have put on such a bad show.
    But i dont blame the fighters, i blame the UFC for indulging them and allowing it to happen.
    Take a look at some of the boxing top 10 heavy weights.
    They are athletes, these two are bar room fighters.

    He's younger for sure, but lets be real, Overeem or Hunt in their K1 days were way out of Ngannou's league. Stipe, Lewis, Ngannou all just showed up at the right time when all of the actual top HWs are 40 and for whatever reason when Pride died the pipeline of MMA HW talent went with it.

    If JDS beats him then they better give Cain a senzu bean cuz that's the only match left for Stipe.

    HW and LHW is barely alive. That is what happens when you prioritize manlet divisions. UFC wasted time and money on TUF 24 flyweight and TUF 25 low tier welterweight. Both divisions are already stacked. There is no point making TUF for these divisions.

    Why is everyone pretending tonight like HW is some measurement of quality in MMA.

    There's like one guy in HW that has good cardio and he's so fucking injured he's not able to fight more than once a year.

    USADA should give heavyweights the same exemption to juice they've given Cris Cyborg. You can't expect two massive giggling orbs of fat to fight for a whole 25 minutes ffs.

    I cant help but think that the UFC should impose some sanctions on these guys.
    If not then the devision will be like this for years to come.
    That was a prelim fight not a main card.
    Call it what you want.
    Fact is, that was an own goal for the ufc.
    Fight won because one of the two was so out of condition he could not continue.

    Stipe isn't going to lose unless the French guy is the goods. In fact Ngannou, Cain(if he can get out of the gym injury-free) and Blaydes should get the next title shots everyone else is suspended or shopworn...
